Conduct Your Own Search for an Internship
Use a search engine like Google to type in a variety of phrases to generate some possibilities. For example, you might try "internships psychology Rockville" as a first attempt and see what pops up. Vary it a bit each time to enlarge or reduce your scope - you might try "internships psychology MD", "internships psychology Maryland", "mental health internships Maryland" etc.
You can also search for internships by going to specific company websites and surfing around under "Employment" or "Human Resources." For example, go to the National Institute of Standards and Technology site (find it by typing in the organization name in google ) and look in the Employment link.
Remember that many students go for big name companies and organizations, so competition for internships may be intense. If you offer yourself as an intern at a smaller / local company, they may not have a formal intern program but they may be very willing to put you to work. A smaller organization may be able to give you more responsibility in handling a variety of tasks.
Have a resume ready before you begin your search. Make use of MC's resume writing services to polish up your form.
Internship Listings on the Web:
Many companies & organizations list internship vacancies on the Web. Remember that everyone else is searching this way, too, so actual opportunities may be limited. This is a good way to get an idea of the types of internships that exist, and perhaps you can market yourself as an intern for a local company after you see the kinds of things that interns generally do.
Idealist. Non-profit organizations. Search by location and category of interest.
